The Canadian government spends one billion dollars on security for the G8 and G20 conference and Saturday we see police cars burning in the streets, 550 arrests so far and the police have fired into crowds using rubber bullets and tear gas. Thirty second, newsreels complete! 

The need for such a vulgar sum of money to protect the leaders of democratised countries from their constituency must raise alarm bells in the minds of the individual, why do they need protection from their citizens. They are after all public servants who have failed miserably in protecting their respective economies from theft, with little or no controls in place on the financial markets. 

The loss in employment, homes and division of families caused through the mismanagement of these “world leaders” to national economies has come home to roost in Toronto. With the exception of 300 or so Black Block anarchists, the protests have been peaceful. The messages have been lost in the mainstream media coverage of the violence of a few and ignoring the real issues on the table. 

The media was waiting for this violence and sold it like a drug dealer to a horrified public, real issues do not sell advertising, violence and scandals do. 

Intelligence agencies know who these anarchists are and where they come from, they focus instead of denying alternative media journalists from entering Canada with legitimate reasons for covering the conference of world leaders and allow the troublemakers in. The reasons are clear and many that reporting factual truth and asking hard questions is something that mainstream media outlets have seemed too forgotten in journalism integrity and reporting. 

Why would I believe NBC when general Electric owns them? General Electric profits from their contracts with the defence departments of many countries represented here and this means billions in sales annually, can I rely on NBC to ask the hard questions? 

Four police cars were left abandoned in Toronto when protesters had that morning gone over their routs with the integrated security unit in Toronto, 300 or 350 Black Block members infiltrated the 10,000 strong crowds attempting to get to the security fence. When police prevented them from doing so, they split from the main group and started their rampage. 

Ignoring their duty to protect and serve, the police pulled back and allowed the anarchists to burn police cars and damage businesses in downtown Toronto with no arrests made during the “uprising” even though riot police were in position. Why was this allowed to happen?

Violent actions that are coordinated require organisation and planning, 300 or 350 people executing a coordinated attack clearly shows negligent intelligence from the security forces or agent provocateurs strategically placed within the Black Block to justify one billion in security measures.  

 Regardless of their motives, the Black Block has now made legitimate protesters ill relevant and their work much harder in the future.

The abuse of power by the Toronto police has been evident in areas outside the perimeter of the G8 G20 conference police are using an arbitrary law passed specifically by the Ontario Liberal government that allows police to search and request names of people within the conference zone or five meters from the perimeter fence. In areas well away from these zones, police are stopping people at random and unlawfully searching and detaining them, a violation of the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms. 

Cases of police brutality have also been made public by reporters who claimed they have been punched and detained after identifying themselves as reporters, a cyclist also claims while walking his bike across the street away from the security zone he was tackled by police, held on the ground and was searched as well as his personal belongings. There are more stories like this being reported hourly from downtown Toronto. 

News agencies that supplied their reports with gas masks in anticipation of tear gas being used on protesters are also claiming that police are confiscation the masks even though credentials prove they are covering the conference. Heavy-handed policing is being met with violence as protesters stand up for their charter rights and police continue to abuse their temporarily new powers of arrest that are illegal and in clear violation of Canadian law.

The world’s financial markets are in ruin, government spending is out of control and stock markets are manipulated daily on a whim with 80% of stock trading done automatically through computer software.  Personal net worth of individuals has fallen due to government mismanagement of the economy and financial markets. Wars drain the treasury and feed the children of the nation to slaughter. Wounded are treated as piranhas on the system and income taxes are insufficient to cover the debt.

Governments sponge more money further debasing the value of the dollar and consumer’s anger is directed to corporations for the increase in daily living expenses, when in fact it is the governments borrowing of money that is causing the value of the dollar and the national debt to increase exponentially. 

Tax monies are used to bailout financial institutions increasing the burden on individuals and creating a new generation of working poor and homeless people. Evidence is all around of police brutality and the state employing laws against its citizens keeping people in fear. The constitution is attacked daily and the rights and liberties of Americans are eroded by politicians in Washington who have lost sight of what the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution stand for.

The actions the President has taken during this term violate common law and he has failed to uphold the oath of office, the President has failed to protect the borders from invasion, 30 million illegal immigrants is indeed an invasion and the Federal government legally challenges states that pass legislation to restrict the porous border. He has failed to protect the economy from theft and market manipulation, a form of economic terrorism perpetrated against the American people causing the transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich. 

The current debt for every American citizen is at $42,000.00 per man, woman and child with no end in sight of tackling the growing debt as the government continues to “just print money” and then borrows that money from a private bank called the Federal Reserve.

This is the list of families that have all controlling interest in the Federal Reserve. 

1) The Rothschild Family – London

2) The Rothschild Family – Berlin

3) The Lazard Brothers – Paris

 4) Israel Seiff – Italy

5) Kuhn-Loeb Company – Germany

6) The Warburgs – Amsterdam

7) The Warburgs – Hamburg

 8) Lehman Brothers – New York

9) Goldman & Sachs – New York

10) The Rockefeller Family – New York

Something is terribly wrong with this state of affairs when seven of the top ten stockholders are located in FOREIGN a country, that is 70%!

To articulate how devious this system is, Jim Marrs provides the following data in his extraordinary book, “Rule by Secrecy.” He says that two financial institutions essentially control the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which undeniably controls the other eleven Federal Reserve branches:

1) Chase-Manhattan (controlled by the Rockefellers) – 6,389,445 shares – 32.3%
2) Citibank – 4,051,851 shares – 20.5%

These two entities control nearly 53% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank and considering how many trillions of dollars are involved here; do you think the above-listed banks and families have an inordinate amount of influence in how America is being governed?

This is not a conspiracy theory of international bankers controlling the United States economy; this is indeed a real conspiracy. 

Definitions of conspiracy 

  • a secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act
  • a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act (especially a political plot)
  • a group of conspirators banded together to achieve some harmful or illegal purpose

For nearly eighty years, the U.S. had been without a central bank since the charter for the Second Bank of the United States was allowed to expire. After various financial panics, particularly a severe one in 1907, many Americans became convinced that their country needed some sort of banking and currency reform that would, when threatened by financial panics, provide a ready reserve of liquid assets, and furthermore allow for currency and credit to expand and contract seasonally within the U.S. economy. Some of this was chronicled in the reports of the National Monetary Commission (1909-1912), which was created by the Aldrich-Vreeland Act in 1908. Included in a report of the Commission, submitted to Congress on January 9, 1912, were recommendations and draft legislation with 59 sections, for proposed changes in U.S. banking and currency laws. The proposed legislation was known as the Aldrich Plan, named after the chair of the Commission, Republican Senator Nelson W. Aldrich of Rhode Island. The Plan called for the establishment of a National Reserve Association with 15 regional district branches and 46 geographically dispersed directors primarily from the banking profession. The Reserve Association would make emergency loans to member banks, create money, and act as the fiscal agent for the U.S. government. State and nationally chartered banks would have the option of subscribing to specified stock in their local association branch. It is generally believed that the outline to the Plan had been formulated in a secret meeting on Jekyl Island in November of 1910 in which Aldrich and other well-connected financiers attended.

The Federal Reserve CORPORATION prints money – then loans it, at interest, to our government, let us remember one thing about the very essence of banking – primarily which money should have some type of standard upon which its value is based. In the case of America, we use to operate on what is called a “gold standard” (i.e. our money is backed by gold).  

How money is actually created, and at what cost to the American taxpayer.

If the Federal Reserve wants to print 1,000 one-hundred ($100) bills, their total cost for ink, paper, plates, labor, etc. would be approximately $23.00 (according to Davvy Kidd in “Why a Bankrupt America”). Now, if we do the math, the total cost of 10,000 bills would be $230.00 ($.023 x 10,000). Here is the hook – 10,000 $100 bills equal $1,000,000! The Federal Reserve can “create” a million dollars; LEND it to the U.S. Government (with interest) for a total cost of $230.00! That is not a bad deal if you can get it!

The banking industry calls this process “seigniorage.” 

Seigniorage derived from notes is more indirect, being the difference between interest earned on securities acquired in exchange for bank notes and the costs of producing and distributing those notes

This is theft of biblical proportions  despite of the immense profit margin ($1,000,000 for $230), plus the huge interest payments, our government then needs to tax the American people’s money to pay off their debts via the IRS. So the bankers misappropriate from the government, then the government turns around and embezzle from the people. The American taxpayers abused through this process.

The Federal Reserve has become so arrogant that they have become a literal MONEY MAKING MACHINE, creating currency out of thin air! Therefore, that is where the Fed gets their money – they literally make it, and then lend it to us so they can make even MORE money off it.

Where is the gold in Fort Knox? Why is the USA off the gold standard?

There is only one answer, there is no gold left in Fort Knox, it is all gone, stolen by the very same people who control the Federal Reserve! Is it any wonder why there is so much opposition to Congressman Paul’s request for a full audit of the Federal Reserve and congresses failure to pass this bill?

The American public for the theft and mismanagement of the nation’s economy would crucify our elected officials if the Federal Reserve’s financial dealings were placed under a public microscope in an open form befor congress.

Income taxes are illegal and a fraud perpetrated against the American people for the benefit of private banking, nowhere in the income tax act are individual Americans listed as debtors for the actions or spending habits of the American government. Taxes are paid directly to the private bank called the Federal Reserve, transferring the wealth of the nation to off shore bankers in essence robbing you of representation, the very principal the revolution was founded on, and taxation without representation is unconstitutional.

While media and public attention is focused on the environmental crisis in the gulf, Joe Lieberman’sBill “The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset” has passed committee and headed for the senate floor for voting. 

The Senators pushing the bill rejected the claim that the bill was a ‘kill switch’ for the Internet, not by denying that Obama would be given the authority to shut down the Internet as part of this legislation, but by arguing that he already had the power to do so. 

“That the President already had authority under the Communications Act to “cause the closing of any facility or station for wire communication” when there is a “state or threat of war”, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Fears that legislation bringing the Internet under the regulatory power of the U.S. government is an offensive against free speech Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley  China can shut down the internet, why can’t we?

The real agenda behind the bill is calculated and premeditated to strangle the runaway growth of alternative and independent media outlets, which are exposing government atrocities, cover-ups, and cronyism like never before. Indeed, China uses similar rhetoric about the need to maintain “security” and combating cyber warfare by regulating the web, when in reality the entire program is focused around silencing anyone who criticizes the state.

If existing legislation previously is in play, why does the government need broader legislation given to the President without congressional approval to shut down the internet for four months? 

Government intentions behind this bill can only be the suffocation of independent media outlets that are now competing with and even displacing “Main Stream” press organs, with websites like the Drudge Report now attracting more traffic than many large newspapers combined. http://www.drudgereport.com/

The FTC is running for cover in the wake of reports it plans to tax websites and electronic devices in order to rescue dead tree dinosaur corporate media. FTC head honcho Jon Leibowitz nixed the proposals during testimony before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee, reports the Washington Times. “I think that’s a terrible idea,” said Leibowitz when asked about the taxes on Wednesday.

The backpedaling is not surprising, as the suggestions coming out of the headquarters at 600 Pennsylvania Ave. are about as unpopular as they come in Washington. A poll released Tuesday by Rasmussen Reports found that three out of four of those surveyed opposed taxing gadgets. About the same amount opposed the Drudge Tax. “The American people have absolutely no interest in taxing new media or consumer electronics to prop up an industry that’s clearly on its way out,” pollster Scott W. Rasmussen said in an interview.

It is the duty of every American to oppose this bill for what it is an attack on free speech and the right of independent media to hold government accountable for its actions.

Probing the intentions of this bill under a microscope and the possibility for misuse by the government, as clearly stated by Lieberman’s comparison to China raises many issues that congress has failed to consider. The repercussions against grass root political organisations to raise funds for candidates, much as Obama did during the election should not go unnoticed or ignored.  

The new media that was spawned through the internet, blogs such as this one and E commerce each face the prospective of registering with official government censors or white listed web sites as government control is increasingly exercised over the liberties ingrained in the constitution. The World Wide Web good and bad has clearly advanced communication and allowed for individuals to expose corruption in government and also increase support for grass root political parties fatigued with a two party system.

On the surface this bill makes sense to anyone who gets their news in 30 second sound bites, but a detailed look at this bill and the potential for the sitting President without congressional approval to shut down the internet for four months should concern everyone. Especially during re-election or some perceived national emergency, this would cause untold billions of dollars lost in economic trade through e commerce and things we take for granted such as e-mail and text messaging would be lost as well. 

Most importantly of all, the independent and alternative media currently reporting on the governments attacks on liberty and civil rights would be silenced. It is time we looked in the mirror and asked, if not me then who.

Pulp Friction

Posted: June 24, 2010 in Politics

The President fires General McChrystal over comments made drinking in a pub while grounded by volcanic ash with a Rolling Stones reporter in the mix. Ill-advised to say the least but as the old saying goes, “loose lips sink ships”, in this case the career of an esteemed general officer. One can only imagine the severe frustration the general and his staff harboured towards the administration and their policy in Afghanistan. 

In his remarks, President Obama stated, “institutions are stronger than individuals”, I beg your pardon Mr. President? People are living, breathing human beings, individuals whose labour and sweat build communities, states, and countries when the combined effort of these individuals works towards a common goal, and through this labour builds the symbols and institutions that you so incestuously covet over the rights of the individual. 

You have lost sight of what it means to be an American when you value institutions “rights” over the common person, Americans living breathing individuals. The voting individuals of America will make this abundantly clear to you in 2012. 

The war is at a standstill and you intend to recall troop’s home in the false pretense that all is well, when in fact you plan on attacking Iran over more counterfeit claims that they have nuclear capability or soon will and American cities will be reduced to ash if we fail to act! 

What is a crime sir is 2000 oil skimmers are sitting idle in the United States and your refusal to accept aid from friendly countries to help assist in the furthermost environmental crisis the United States has ever faced. How can you justify keeping your job with such gross miss-management affecting the lives of millions of Americans and you fire a general officer because he embarrassed you? 

850 billion dollars paid to bankers and Wall Street criminals responsible for the theft of wealth of Americans and you still allow these same people to repossess the homes of the individuals whose tax dollars bailed out their empires of cards and stolen wealth! The American people, each of them individuals deserve better. It is time to stop all foreclosures in America, these homes have been paid for in cash by the American taxpayer, they are now public housing and the banks have no claim on any of them. 

Get down to doing the business of the President; Americans need leadership, not dictatorship, if you can arbitrarily Order BP to put aside 20 billion dollars for restitution, you can do the same for the American people and order the banks to stop foreclosures and placing families in the street. 

Taxes collected by the government are for the benefit of the people, to improve communities and build the nation’s infrastructure to improve the lives of each individual American and allow the entrepreneurial spirit to flourish in a fair and open market. 

 Allowing computers to trade stocks unchecked has proven detrimental to the economy when companies stock can drop 38% and trade up again in six seconds, this brings Wall Street under world scrutiny and cheats the common person, and pension investments out of millions of dollars in seconds, bringing the integrity of the market into question, and yet you do nothing. 

America is indeed at war Mr President, but the enemy is from within and we the people are not stupid, we see and understand what is happening and you have failed to defend the United States, as is your sworn oath of office. 

So please excuse me if I do not care that your feelings were hurt and one of our Generals embarrassed you, in comparison, you owe the American people a hell of a lot more.

America awake yet?

Posted: June 21, 2010 in Politics

Joe Lieberman attempted to reassure the American public yesterday on CNN concerning his bill that would give the President of the United States the power to close or restrict access to the internet in times of national emergencies. 

Lieberman cited China a country that censors all online dissent against the state, as the model to which American should compare itself.  This only heightens concerns that the government is in fact going after free speech with the bill “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act” granting ownership of the internet to the Federal government. 

Intelligent people from every socio economic background have an obligation to challenge this bill with every means possible, call you representatives in Washington, and make your voices heard clearly. 

The draconian measures of this bill will influence our lives and ability in every aspect from economic to political dissension and registering your website through government-approved censors will be the next logical step to restrict your rights under the constitution, much the same, as China now requires its citizens to comply with prior to using the internet. 

“Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,” said Lieberman. 

Chinese Internet censorship is compulsory via a centralized government blacklist of any websites that contain criticism of the state, porn, or any other content deemed unsuitable by the authorities. Every time citizens of China attempt to visit a website, they are guided through the government firewall restricting them to approved government listings only. 

This is the internet Lieberman envisions for Americans and it dangerous territory when any government or Senator introduces legislation attacking free speech and commerce. The erosion of civil rights in America started on September 11 and the constitution has come under increasing attacks ever since.

The words and vision the founding fathers of the United States entrenched in the constitution resonate as strongly today as they day they were written and is the single most important document in the United States, protecting each of you from the authoritarian designs on your rights the government so easily treads on in the name of national security. 

China has exercised its power to shut down the Internet, something that Lieberman wants to introduce in the U.S., at politically sensitive times in order to stem the flow of information about government abuse and atrocities. During the anti-government riots, which occurred in July 2009, the Chinese government completely shut down the Internet across the entire northwestern region of Xinjiang for days. Similarly, Internet access in parts of Tibet is routinely restricted as part of government efforts to pre-empt and neutralize unrest.

In addition, the FCC has rolled a censorship plan into its Net Neutrality scheme in a stealth attempt to impose Internet regulation.

Political discourse is constructive in a free and open society and restrictions placed on the free exchange of ideas and opinion fails to develop or allow for the necessary changes to societal problems the free flow of ideas convey.

The federal government would have “absolute power” to shut down the Internet under the terms of a new US Senate bill being pushed by Joe Lieberman, legislation which would hand President Obama a figurative “kill switch” to seize control of the world wide web in response to a Homeland Security directive.

Cap and Trade

Posted: June 16, 2010 in Conspiracy, Politics

Another attempt to destroy the American economy camouflaged as an eco friendly approach to green house gas emissions was delivered by President Obama this evening in the wake of the BP oil fiasco in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Cap and trade is dangerous to any nations economy, policy being proposed by President Obama would essentially put a price on carbon dioxide emissions by auctioning off permits to emit the gas. The “cap” would work by setting a maximum amount of carbon to be emitted in the United States, and the “trade” would allow the carbon emitters to freely trade carbon permits amongst themselves. 

Spain’s attempt at an eco friendly economy caused a job loss of two to one in the green economy and the country faces bankruptcy and a potential bailout from the European Union of $650 billion dollars on this failed experiment. 

Plants use carbon dioxide during photosynthesis to make sugars, which may either be consumed in respiration or used as the raw material to produce other organic compounds needed for plant growth and development. It is emitted during respiration by Plants, and by all animals, fungi, and microorganisms that depend either directly or indirectly on plants for food. It is a major component of the carbon cycle. Carbon dioxide is generated as a by-product of the combustion of fossil fuels or the burning of vegetable matter, among other chemical processes. Amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted from volcanoes and other geothermal processes such as hot springs and geysers and by the dissolution of carbonates in crustal rocks. 

Before the advent of human-caused release of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, concentrations tended to increase with increasing global temperatures, acting as a positive feedback for changes induced by other processes such as orbital cycles. There is a seasonal cycle in CO2 concentration associated primarily with the Northern Hemisphere growing season. 

 Volcanoes emit CO2 both on land and underwater. Underwater volcanoes emit around 66 to 97 million tonnes of CO2 per year. However, this is balanced by the carbon sink provided by newly formed ocean floor lava. Consequently, underwater volcanoes have little effect on atmospheric CO2 levels. The greater contribution comes from sub aerial volcanoes (sub aerial means “under the air”, referring to land volcanoes). Sub aerial volcanoes are estimated to emit 242 million tonnes of CO2 per year. 

Buried Volcano Discovered in Antarctica  By Dave Mosher, Live Science Staff Writer
20 January 2008:
“This eruption occurred close to Pine Island Glacier on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet,” Vaughan said. “The flow of this glacier towards the coast has speeded up in recent decades, and it may be possible that heat from the volcano has caused some of that acceleration.”

The cap and trade scheme would work much the same as the stock market with a clearinghouse profiting off industry trading carbon credits and distributing the wealth offshore. The affect on national economies as proven by Spain, would be catastrophic by limiting production in carbon producing industry “everyone”. 

This in turn would lead to massive job loss as companies invest in technology at the expense of people and industries required to purchase additional credits from countries that have little or no carbon foot print transferring wealth to countries with minimal infrastructure and suspect governments. 

Two of the world’s largest polluters and emerging super economies would be exempt from the cap and trade scheme, China and India; giving each country an advantage and changing the geopolitical position of Western societies as economies become weaker through restrictions on economic output due to provisional carbon caps. 

Western economies are currently vulnerable to cap and trade as research in technology reducing or eliminating carbon emissions is still in development, and implementation of such a scheme will seriously affect the GDP of countries involved in cap and trade.
